5410 Northeast 33rd Avenue, Portland, OR
Parking lot of New Seasons on 33rd and Killingsworth.
There is a new coupon on Restaurant.com for Cannon’s, so we had to go there! (If you missed the blog post about restaurant.com, let me recap: Restaurant.com sells $25 gift certificates for $10. www.slickdeals.net posts Promo Codes for restaurant.com. The promo codes give you anywhere from 60 – 80% off the price of the gift certificate. We never buy a gift certificate at full price! So it makes your meal even cheaper!)
OK, back to Cannon’s….
What we ordered: Half pound of brisket, Full rack of ribs, 2 corn on the cobs
How we ordered it: No barbecue sauce please! There’s a lot of sugar on the sauce and they load it up on the ribs and brisket.
What we got:
Cost: Rack of pork ribs – $23, Brisket – $10 for half pound, Corn – $1 each
Quality: Ribs were a little dry. Even though we said to hold the barbecue sauce, doesn’t mean it still shouldn’t be dry….Brisket was spectacular. Moist and tasty.
Quantity: OK, half pound of brisket really was not as much as we had hoped, but the quality was pretty good. Ribs were really just OK, not as good as Podnah’s. They did keep the rib tips on the ribs which definitely added to the meat amount.
(picture was not taken at Cannon’s) Definitely not the best in Portland. It was just OK. For the price and the amount, it’s right smack in the middle. RIbs were definitely a bit disappointing. But there’s a new Special price on the Bucket of Rib Tips – $18. Though because this is a special, it doesn’t work with the restaurant.com coupon, it’s not a bad deal by itself. In general though barbecue places are great for any Paleo needs. All meat all the time, with no need for substitutions, usually, it’s great if you’re in a bind and not sure what to eat for the protein part of your meal.
